Ide Park and Ride plan withdrawn - for now

Devon county council has withdrawn its controversial plan for a park and ride scheme in Ide - but says it may submit a different version.

Campaigners against the plan are calling on the county council to abandon it altogether.

The village held a referendum on the issue earlier this year - and overwhelmingly voted no, mainly over concerns that it could set a precedent for building on fields between Ide and Exeter.

They also say it wouldn't achieve its aim of cutting congestion.
